This textbook was designed and developed to provide health care students, primarily health
information management and health information technology students, and health care professionals
with a rudimentary understanding of the terms, definitions, and formulae used in
computing health care statistics and to provide self-testing opportunities and applications of
the statistical formulae.
This chapter gives an overview of some properties of the storage occupancy process in a buffer fed with ``fractional Brownian traf®c,'' a Gaussian self-similar process. This model, called here ``fractional Brownian storage,'' is the logically simplest long-range-dependent (LRD) storage system having strictly self-similar input variation. The impact of the self-similarity parameter H can be very clearly illustrated with this model.
The point of this table is to establish that adaptation is happening and to motivate how we
use bank data to speak to tax evasion. A number of banks in southern Europe told us point
blank that they have adaptation formulas to adjust clientsíreported income to the bankís best
estimate of true income, and furthermore, that these adjustments are speciÖc to occupations.
Table 1 shows evidence of adaptation in practice. Take the examples of lawyers, doctors,
Önancial services, and accountants.
